The Amicus Interviews are meant for broader discussions on legal education, and the legal profession. As I have mentioned earlier, one field that I am interested is in legal academia, and what it means in the Indian context. I was therefore particularly excited to speak with Kanad Bagchi, an Indian law graduate (KIIT Law School ’13) who is currently a Research Fellow at the Max Planck Institute in Germany.

In the first part of our two-part conversation, Kanad discusses the reasons behind taking up a master’s program at the Europa-Institut, what being a research scholar means and a whole lot more.
